Workshop Description:

Attention: 5th through 12th Grade Teachers of History and Social Studies:

The Council for Economic Education, NY, is pleased to offer free professional development webinars for teachers nationwide. The webinars cover multiple topics on how to integrate personal finance and economics in the classroom and create a fun learning experience for your students.

Three streams of foreigners seek entry into the USA. Only one stream can be termed immigrants on a legal path toward citizenship. The other two groups are legal goal migrants (such as workers or students) and undocumented illegal persons. We will identify different groups within each of the three streams, discuss their economic importance, and show how these topics can be used in grades 5-12 history and social studies classes. Examples from other countries will be illustrated. Participants will come away with information and activities to use in the classroom.

Presenter: Harry Stein teaches History of the American Economy at Manhattan College and in the history department at CUNY. He frequently presents at conferences of the Council for Social Studies teachers.

When you attend the webinar(s), you will leave with relevant lessons, resources and tools that can be implemented the next day. If you are interested, but cannot attend the live webinar, please register to get access to the archived version. You must attend a live webinar or listen to a recorded webinar for at least 45 minutes in order to receive a certificate.
